STARBURST FESTIVAL SPECIAL GUESTS
Stephen La Rivière
An award-winning documentary filmmaker, Stephen La Rivière was the powerhouse behind the fantastic Filmed in Supermarionation, which looked at the history and legacy of Gerry Anderson.
Stephen will be at the festival with episodes from the new Thunderbirds 1965, which mixes old 1960s voice tracks and newly-filmed Supermarionation work to create something brand-new, but with the same Anderson aesthetic.
The Thunderbirds 1965 project raised over £200,000 on Kickstarter, making it the most successful UK film project, and we’re sure you’re just as excited to see the results as we are when Stephen premieres the episodes at the STARBURST International Film Festival.
With his instantly recognisable voice, David Graham is the perfect guest for the inaugural STARBURST International Film Festival. On screen, you’ll have heard David’s dulcet tones voicing the Daleks in early episodes of Doctor Who.
Possibly even more famously, as several characters in Gerry Anderson productions. Notably, Parker, Brains, Gordon Tracy, and Kyrano in Thunderbirds. He returned to the role of the intrepid chauffeur in the 2015 reboot Thunderbirds Are Go!
Are we excited about David appearing at the STARBURST Film Festival? “Yes, M’lady.”
